It's Not That Kind of Political, They Swear

Citizens United, a right-wing political group dedicated to such things as the "rejection of one-world government" and enacting "key elements of President Bush's conservative legislative and policy agenda" has a movie about Hillary. It's totally a movie, people, not a political ad or anything. Just because it's coming out in the midst of primary season and smears Hillary doesn't mean it's tantamount to political advertising, they swear!


The documentary stars such nonpartisan notables as Ann Coulter, Newt Gingrich, Dick Armey, Kathleen Willey and Larry Kudlow The filmmaker, David Bossie (a one-time staffer for Republican Congressman Dan Burton) wants to let the younger generations know all about the travel office scandal, apparently not realizing that no one really gives a shit when they do actually know about it.

Despite the movie not being, you know, done (despite press on its site that says it was supposed to be released last fall), Bossie wants to start running ads for it, which are IN NO WAY meant to be political ads against Hillary. The Federal Elections Commission disagreed with Bossie's assertion (apparently, the bullshit meter was functioning that week) and is saying that the ads have to run with the standard political disclaimer or not at all. So Citizens United is suing, naturally, claiming that "These ads are selling a product." Umm, right. A product that doesn't exist yet and might not before the election that you're hoping to influence with the product, which is why you want to run the ads now.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
